The Republic of Firseria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Reven with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.125 billion Firserians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nevopolis. The average income tax rate is 36.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Firserian economy, worth 72.1 trillion Piscals a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,064 Piscals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, and a third of Firserians are e-certified CEOs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firseria's national animal is the Albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Firseria is ranked 32,939th in the world and 73rd in The Union of Democratic States for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.11 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
